Today is a beautiful day. 40 degrees, the sun is shining. The weather conditions are beautiful. I like nature. There’s nothing like seeing a sunrise or sunset as you’re traveling down the open highway. It’s a beautiful thing. So many people take that for granted. When the weather is right, traffic is flowing, the truck is performing good, and I’m experiencing nature— it feels like that’s where I’m supposed to be. It’s an almost spiritual connection.
I take pride in driving the tanker. It’s like an upper echelon and driving for First Choice— there’s a family atmosphere here. Everyone knows your name. I’m not just “8048”, I’m Howard Seaton. I’m a big believer in being a team player— just helping one another out. I try to be as helpful as possible because I might have some experience in an area that you don’t have and I can share my experience with you, and by sharing our experiences with one another, we make a stronger team. It’s the type of atmosphere I was looking for as a driver, and this is one of the best companies I’ve ever worked for
